The Ultimate Glamour Girl of 2011

There were so many Glamour Girl moments this year. In my humble opinion…no one lived up to the title better than Kate Middleton. As Kate embarked on her new duties as the Duchess of Cambridge she solidified her place in history as a Royal with grace,elegance and oodles of style. Never one to have a misstep when it comes to her fashion choices I think we can learn allot from this Glamour Girl going forward into the New Year.   

Let’s Review:  

Lesson #1. You don’t have to spend gobs of cash to look like a million bucks. Kate wore an Issa dress that retails for a little over $300.00 when she announced her engagement with Prince William. P.S. The dress sold out in under 24 hours after her appearance. The pink long dress is also an Issa creation.

 

Lesson #2. Embrace  the use of color.

Lesson #3- Apparel with clean lines will stand the test of time. 

 

Lesson #4- Evening wear needn’t be “over the top” for you to stand out. The most important aspect of any garment is that it should accentuate your most positive attributes. Notice how simple and elegant Kate’s choices are in all her apparel selections-especially when it comes to evening wear. She looks so comfortable yet stunning. Side note: Accessories are well appointed and at a minimum.

Lesson #5. Your best accessory is always a smile.

A Leg Up on the latest Hoisery Debate….

Lately there seems to be a rather big “to do” over pantyhose. The peeps at the Huffington Post recently reported that: Pantyhose is making a comeback. (P.S. Note to self-You KNOW that this is all due to the fact that Kate Middleton is wearing them.)

As is everything that concerns fashion I have some thoughts…

I really don’t know when the use of pantyhose went “out of style” but I for one have always embraced the thought of some sort of uniform leg coverage to make one look polished and pulled together.

Warm climates allow a Glamour Girl to use a good self tanner to keep legs looking great but once the temperature starts to dip (and in California-that means-slip below a balmy 70 degrees) one must think outside the box …or rather inside the package of pantyhose, fishnets, opaque’s or other type of hosiery as a means to look presentable and stay warm.  A good pair of  sheer pantyhose can give you a uniform-healthy looking skin tone and some much needed support. (Translation:There is nothing better than a pair of hosiery with a touch of spandex woven in to make you look slimmer, sleeker and smooth as can be). For all us who want to have a “leg up” on looking great…embrace your inner love for pantyhose. The hosiery peeps will thank you for your support and you in turn will be supported… It’s a  win -win situation for everyone. AMEN!

Sensational Shoe Sketches for Kate!

Time is ticking away to the BIG DAY for Kate Middleton. Let’s face it, unless you  elope  or can afford  to have everything done for you  (including the decision making process on who, what and where…)weddings are  a celebration  and coordination of monumental proportions.

Imagine then if you will, that your wedding will be telecast to BILLIONS, and what you choose to wear on your special day will be scrutinized to the tenth degree-not to mention that it will probably end up on display in some museum for decades to come. No pressure. Right!

THE DRESS  that Kate will  select  for her wedding day has been the MAJOR fashion buzz for weeks on end. Yet, there is little mention of what shoes Kate will choose to wear as she walks down the aisle.  Every Glamour Girl, worth her salt knows that the shoe can really make or break the whole ensemble. Have no fear –Kate is being deluged with numerous offering from a bevy of beautiful designers. I don’t know how Kate will decide, but one thing is for certain: It’s got to be a very sketchy situaiton.
